Paul’s Way

Paul Caiacob’s surname is interesting but commercial logic dictated that he call his various businesses “Mr Paul”. Much easier for clients and staff. An English migrant to Perth whose boyhood had been clouded by war and family disruption, he and his wife Elizabeth – who ran the Effie Crump Theatre in Perth for years – have much reason to be glad they swapped hemispheres in 1963.

Paul’s way, a long and winding road, includes travels in the Outback and in Europe, where he tracked down that distinctive surname in Switzerland. His creativity has produced sculptures that turn heads. For me as writer/editor, his evolving into a lively and colourful memoirist was a huge help in producing the life story.
